Thanks Mark. My fly......TBA.

Sounds interesting, Mark. Count me in. On one of these swaps-this makes number five I've taken part in I may Actually get some flies back! Byron-That includes U. K. forums to which I think the organisers are rather slow returning the swapped flies.

Flytier- Nope- no restrictions. I suspect most of the swappers in this one though will be fishing for trout so something that might has the potential of attracting a trout's attention would be especially likely to please.

Have you not received flies from NAFFF swaps? Only one person hasn't to my knowledge and that was because the return address was illegible and he hasn't responded to my PMs and is no longer active on the forum. I still have his flies all ready to go though in case he surfaces...

Hi Mark-no they were on englsh (uk) forums and apparently some are winging their way to me now. The ones I did get back are some lovely cdc patterns tied much better than I could ever manage so I hope I can learn from others as I wish to do. I was told I use much too heavy a thread and don't always get the proportions right so hope the ones I send will be all the better for the critique.
